Meyer Tool Inc. (MIT) today announced the expansion of its Greenville County facility that will add 44,000 square feet to the building to accommodate new growth in manufacturing.
“Meyer Tool is a leader within the aerospace and power generation industry and a true ally of Greenville, South Carolina," Greenville County Council Chairman Dr. Bob Taylor said. "We are excited to have them as part of our industrial community and applaud their continued growth.”
The $6 million investment will bring 57 new jobs to Greenville. Hiring will begin in early 2017. MIT maintains a career page where job seekers can research career opportunities.
“This expansion is necessary to continue growing our existing business, as well as adding new opportunities," MIT General Manager, Greenville, Chris Urban said. "The growth reflects our continuing commitment to provide superior service to our customers. Without our strong team and partners none of this would be possible.”
MIT manufactures precision components for the aerospace and gas turbine engine industry. Its specialties include water jet, laser and electrical discharge machining (EDM) and laser welding. It has AS9100 and NADCAP certifications. MIT is North America's largest EDM shop, with more than 800 EDM machines in its facilities.
“It’s always exciting to see a company like Meyer Tool succeed in our state and make the decision to expand here," Gov. Nikki Haley said. "This $6 million investment, and the 57 new jobs it means for Greenville County, shows that Team South Carolina’s approach to creating a competitive business environment and building a world-class workforce is paying off for both South Carolinians and our companies.”
